The highlight of the Akshay Weds Nikita Invite, with 1,100 pieces, is the top-box structure in the shape of the Madurai temple. Following initial mock-ups wherein the structure of the design was finalised, Lustra did the initial sampling to ensure that registration on the folds were perfect along with the Scodix gold treatment.

The carry bag and the box also used a mix of alternating gold screen printing and gold Scodix treatment. The leaves on the inside tray were gold-gilded.

The highlight of the Niru Jain wedding invite, with 500 pieces, is the laser-cut envelope. The job uses floral colours treated with subtle gold leafing treatment on the edge of the box. The inside leaves have been printed with raised screen gold printing and the edges are gold-gilded to make it look premium.

The Nira Radia wedding invite, with 1,350 pieces, features a box with a tray along with a book which houses the invite. The box was printed with gold screen. The edges of the book are gold-gilded.

The bottom tray has blind-UV treatment. The invite has been printed with raised screen gold printing and the edges are gold-gilded.

The Ayushi Ameve wedding invite, with 1,000 pieces, features a unique outer box opening from the middle of the box, revealing the invite. The invite features die-cut flowers which were individually hand-pasted to achieve the three-dimensional look. The inside leaves feature gold foil stamping along with gilding on the edges.
